Default Shipping Rate?

I just got a quote to ship my Camaro from Toronto to Houston for $2500 US. That’s similar to going from Detroit to Houston plus a couple of hours. Anyone get a quote recently to compare this to? Enclosed and insured…

That’s not to bad. The car is to special for the guy not to pay that.

That's pretty similar in distance and price to what it cost to get enclosed shipping for my Chevelle from Oregon to Iowa last fall.

Just curious...but who did you get a rate quote from?

I know it can now be a real PITA to complete the DOT importation paperwork for US Customs now days. Does that rate include all the customs paperwork? I use TFX for that specific reason as they help with most of that and include the brokerage fee for Rutherford Intl to handle all the customs end of it from the US side in Buffalo.

I just shipped a car from PA to FL, enclosed and insured for $1,700. The car was around half the value of your Camaro...

I paid that much 17 years ago to ship mine from London to LA. Enclosed & fully insured.
Sounds like a good rate to me! Good luck!

Thanks guys!

That rate is from TFX. Brokerage is an additional US$670. I’m thinking about resisting my car with freight and brokerage included in the selling price as that seems to be what is holding up the sale. And the green one just sold for $80,325 with fees!

I will never buy a car from canada again. Beware. The price every carrier promised changed on an hourly basis. Complete nightmare. Fwiw. They offered a set price to florida from toronto. Im 1300 miles closer and the price was 600 higher.

Shippers bid out the work, I guess you'd want to use a shipper/broker who has an excellent reputation and you'd insure the car as well. I know one guy shipped a car from AZ to Chicago and it was $1700 one way so $2500 sounds pretty fair.

Thanks guys. I’ve used TFX at least once per year on average since 2000 and never had an issue. They are getting this run too as the car is going to Texas.
